It makes me mad every time I read stuff like this. It's unbelievable the lack of regulation in this type of business. My motto has always been: if the price is too good, beware! There are a multitude of online electronic retailers scamming people left to right. When I buy expensive items online, I always stick to the reputable stores (in the case of cameras, I shop at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Beachcamera/BUYDIG, Abes of Maine and a couple others) AND I use my American Express card. In situations such as this, I'd call AMEX and dispute the charges. They are awesome and will fight for your rights. So, I'd suggest you contact your CC bank and dispute the charges.
